If you’ve been collecting stickers/goodies on UNIX & other programming languages that you love, Unixstickers should not require an introduction. Italy based e-commerce, Unixstickers has been the one-stop shop for getting Linux and programming stickers, magnets, mugs and other merchandises. Unixstickers has been the official merchandise vendor for a number of open source projects and it donated part of the profit to a number of open source projects.
Recently, we noticed that they have redesigned their website and have started to offer new stickers powered by Sticker Mule, their parent company.
Well, the redesigning part is not the most important here. They have changed their business model entirely.
Earlier you could choose and buy individual stickers, mugs, badges, t-shirts etc. This is not the case anymore. The inventory has been overhauled completely and now you can have only three packs of stickers available. Mugs, badges, t-shirts are no longer available. This is a letdown if you relied on Unixsticker for your Linux and programming swags.
Pocket-friendly Sticker Packs
This Pro pack costs $9 but for a limited time, it available for only $1 including free shipping worldwide. Unbelievable, I know.
We wrote about it for you to take advantage of the $1 sticker pack (with free shipping). But, if you want more range of stickers, you can always check out other sticker packs offered by them on their sticker packs page.
The Elite pack offers 26 stickers for 19 USD which includes every sticker of the pro pack + Debian, Linux Tux, GNU Linux, Little Tux, Copyleft, Don’t Drink and Root, GNU, Emacs, C++, Open Source, Jenkins, 127.0.0.1, Docker stickers.
Similarly, the ultimate pack offers 39 stickers for 24 USD which includes every sticker of the elite sticker pack + Linux Inside, Free BSD, Fedora, Linux Mint, Fedora, Ubuntu, Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Fork Bomb, Have You Tried Turning It OFF/ON Again?, React JS, CSS3, HTML5 stickers.
The sticker packs contain some badge stickers and a few big stickers. I did order a pack of them as well (just now), while they mention the dimensions as follows:
- Large stickers dimension: Approx. 2.5 x 2.5 inch (6,5 x 6,5 cm)
- Badge stickers dimension (single): 0.63 x 1.06 inch (1,6 x 2,7cm).
What’s Good About These Stickers?
If you’ve ordered stickers before, you know it already. But, if it’s the first time for you, there’s something you should know:
- The stickers are made with a premium UV resistant vinyl with a unique matte finish only offered by Sticker Mule.
- The stickers do contain enough adhesive to paste almost anywhere.
- The stickers aren’t just meant to be used indoors (laptops/wall), you can even use it outdoors because they are resistant to rain, snow, and dishwashers.
You Can Even Order Custom Stickers
In case you don’t like the sticker packs they offer, you can always opt for custom sticker packs (which will be a bit more expensive – of course).
To do that, you need to head to their parent company Sticker Mule’s website and check what they have to offer.
